From Christmas in New York, to skiing in Norway, we’ve gathered together the places to go in December when the weather gets chilly. If you’d rather a little sunshine instead, we’ve got that covered too, in the form of chic Miami and dreamy Mauritius.
Relax during December, with average temperatures of 25°C on the island of Mauritius. Kick back on picture-perfect white sands or liven things up with water sports or zip-lining through jungles. Go scuba-diving and plunge into the Indian Ocean at Roche Zozo, off Blue Bay on the southern coast, to experience colourful coral reefs and creature encounters. Venture south west to find wild dolphins and enjoy the revitalising spray of sea water on a catamaran.
If you’re looking for a great range of dining choices, then look no further than Constance Belle Mare Plage. Choose from seven enticing options, including La Spiaggia – a romantic beachside restaurant serving sparkling Champagne and imaginative Mediterranean fare. Or the exclusive Blue Penny Cellar, which specialises in innovative cuisine paired with extraordinary wines, in a fabulous wine cellar setting.
Set in lush tropical gardens, LUX* Grand Gaube is enveloped by undulating coves, the calmest of lagoons and is blessed with two tranquil beaches and two spectacular swimming pools. There’s an impressive range of water based activities to try from this hotel’s idyllic secluded peninsula setting, from windsurfing to PADI scuba diving courses.
